The Ranger School
James F. Dubuar Memorial Forest

In 1912, some 2,800 acres of land in the Adirondack Mountains were donated to the College as a site for the development of a Ranger School. Since that time, the forest technology program has trained over 3,000 graduates, most of whom are now working in a variety of forest activities, and it has earned The Ranger School a national reputation for excellence. The program is administered by and is an integral part of the Department of Forest and Natural Resources Management. This unique model of a single professional faculty offering all levels of study from technical through postdoctoral emphasizes the teamwork approach to forest resource science and management espoused by the faculty.
